Day 5


January 4th, 2012

Note the original Belgian block paving stones exposed where the asphalt has worn away.

    Good eye, Matt, as always. I might have missed those paving stones at first glance.

    I am SO far behind on your walk. Been super busy, but I will catch up. At some point, I’ll want to go back to see all that I have missed. :-)

    Based on low activity here in general, which is a huge surprise to me, it seems lots of people either are busy, too, and/or have not found the new walk.

    Over on the USA side, I left a post telling folks (’cause someone had asked) how to find this part of the blog.

    If this is bugging you, Matt, please don’t let it get you down. You are in my thoughts a lot, as I’m sure is the case with many others.

    Last night, as I went out to get a bit of night air as is my wont (don’t you love this word?), the porch thermometer read something like 5 degrees Fahrenheit, and the wind chill was near 10 below.

    Was wondering for a moment where you were in your walk at that time, and if you were feeling the freeze.

    Very much looking forward to catching up, and keeping up.

    In the meantime, all the best, and keep on keepin’ on. ;-)

      I’m here, I’ve been here. Matt’s walk comes up just fine for me. Don’t know about others problems. His first walk took people a while to catch onto it but it picked up. I’m sure this one will too as Matt posts more awesome photo’s. I’m happy to see people I haven’t “seen” in a while popping back in. Glad to see you all again!!!

    • I’m not getting done what I need to do because I am enjoying Matt’s pics so much, learning a lot about NY also. Will be doing a real fast visit in June on our cross country trip.

    I’m here too. I just never can think of anything to say. :-)

    I am curious, though, where Matt is staying at night. Are you going back to your apartment each night? Surely you’re not just sleeping at the end of the street…. And what about your traveling gear this trip – is that famous cart with you?

    • Joisy Jeff says: on the details it is all there….except for the Cart. I suspect he is not needing it this time.

      Was a chilly night yesterday…

        Hi Joisy Jeff,

        Thanks so much – I thought I’d click on everything here, but had missed one of the most important links!

    Getting back to the photo I’ll guess – the cab hit a deer?

    • Dorinda from Mentor, Oh. says:

      In the middle of NYC? Do they really have deer there like that there?
      And, do you have a problem with our little “chit-chat” chatter?

    Those Belgian blocks had so much more character but I suppose they make for a bumpy ride.
